Great place to go for some excellent traditional Russian fare like Kholodets or Jelly Pork Legs, or the Cabbage with Apples and Cranberries or smoked Pork Ribs and fried potatoes. Amazing food.

Lovely service and advice on which vodka to choose for the caviar which is a must. The chicken kiev is also great. Wonderful homemade spirits that almost taste too good :-) Would love to visit again.
